SMODO is an innovative technology which connects the classic puppet animation with the motion capture. Using SMODO, instead of with a puppet, the animator works with its armature equipped in colourful markers. A special marker tracking system brings the armature pose into a 3D software, in which the armature is merged with a digital puppet model. In effect, on the computer screen the animation artist can see the whole puppet, just like in classic animation. SMODO technology guara
ntees cost-reduction, post-production stage shortening, and simplifying the work on the filmset. SMODO is also an innovative education tool. The technology idea originated with Grzegorz Wacławek, film producer and creator of very successful Animoon studio.
